Group hike the Lake George Land Conservancy's beautiful trails at the Hike-A-Thon!

Lake George Land Conservancy's Hike-A-Thon showcases their parks and preserves by holding large group hikes and paddles on the same day every summer. If you are not in the area, you can participate virtually!

Hikes take place simultaneously around Lake George, finishing with an aerial photo of each hiking group by helicopter! This event is free, but donations are gratefully accepted as it is used to run the event and help with maintenance and enhancement of the properties.  

After your hike, or paddle, regroup at the After-Party located at the Bolton Conservation Park! Here you can enjoy refreshments and activities with your fellow hikers. Hike-A-Thon volunteers, participants and their family and friends are welcome to join in the fun! 

*Please note: While we hope that by July conditions in New York will allow for more freedom to be together, we will continue to enforce special precautions as necessary to ensure the safety of our guests during the coronavirus pandemic.
